Engineering is Awesome
A new plan to include climate change and evolution in science class is due this month, but it’s up to states to adopt
Baking soda volcanoes just aren’t cutting it anymore. American public school students in science classes of the near-future should be taught that human activity is leading to global warming by the end of eighth grade, that DNA supports the theory of evolution by the end of high school, and that human beings can engineer cleaner energy sources and more abundant food and water supplies, according to a new national education plan for kindergarten through high school, due to be released by the end of March.
The plan, called Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), is being finalized right now by a crack team of 41 experts from around the country, made up of science teachers, school officials and even a researcher at the DuPont chemical company. It’s completely voluntary and up to each state’s of board of education to adopt the final plan, and 26 states have been helping craft it over the past two years.
